Taylor, Olive A. (14 JUN 1844 - 12 JUN 1901)

Last week the Phonograph mentioned the death of Mrs. C.R. Taylor, which occurred so near our time of going to press that we were unable to procure data for an obituary, this week we copy, partially, from the Weekly Clarion, especially the dates.

Mrs. Taylor, whose maiden name was Olive Abigail Gilson, was the sister of the late Hon. Luther F. Gilson of Milwaukee. She was born in Cuyahoga, Co., Ohio, June 14th, 1844; she came to Newberg, Washington Co., Wis., with her parents when quite young; Dec. 3rd, 1867, she was united in marriage with Chas. R. Taylor, who survives her. In 1872 they came to the town of Hull, Marathon Co., and took up a homestead, but in 1873 moved into the village, now city, of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., where they have made their residence since.

Mrs. Taylor was a kind, Christian woman, loved and respected by all who knew her; she was an earnest member of the W.R.C. and that society assisted at the funeral. Besides her husband she leaves two sons, Clarence M. of Loyal, Roy G. of Abbotsford, and one daughter, Ione, at home, to mourn the loss of a faithful wife and a kind and loving mother.

She had been sick for about a year and the family believed her to be improving, but she suddenly became worse and the absent members of the family were summoned but failed to reach her bedside before dissolution. Kind neighbors and friends assisted the daughter in ministering to her in her last moments. The husband and children appreciate the kindness and feel grateful to them and the many friends who rallied to their assistance in their bereavement.

The funeral was held form the M.E. Church, Friday, Rev. E.G. Vischer officiating, the remains were taken to Loyal for interment, where Rev. J.A. Hill officiated at the cemetery.
